With new use case, a special feature about future of 3D printing, and source files for designer lamps. Here’s ZMorph Digest #31 with all the latest news you should check.
Customizable 3D printed shoes
Design students Zuzanna Gronowicz and Barbara Motylinska created an intriguing concept for customizable 3D printed shoes. They’re made from eco-friendly materials and can be ordered using an online app. ZMorph multitool 3D printer was used to manufacture prototypes and plan the entire production pipeline. Check out our latest use case for more details.
How will 3D printing evolve in the next five years?
Head over to 3D Printing Industry where our founder and CEO, Przemek Jaworski, answers this question in a special guest post. Short excerpt below.
5 years seems like a long time but when you look back – it often feels like some events, discoveries, or trends happened just a moment ago. 5 years ago I was still working as an architect and designer, looking for a desktop tool that would enable me to use various fabrication methods in rapid prototyping. There were none at the time, desktop 3D printing in general was a fairly new deal, and that’s when the idea to build a ZMorph machine came to my mind.
CNC bedside lamp
ZMorph user Julien Doolaeghe designed and manufactured his own wooden bedside lamp using CNC PRO toolhead. Source files for his project are available for free on Instructables along with a guide on how to make the lamp. It’s fairly easy to make and looks really great.
Source files for 3D printed lamps
You could also 3D print a new lamp using the source files for our modular flower lamps which are now available for free. Lamps designed by Paula Szarejko can be modified to fit in various interiors, they can also be used as desk, bedside and floor lamps. The guide below shows how to make them.
